Late at night,
I think of you.

"If you think she'll just fall into your arms just like that, it's not going to happen."

I scoff. Rolling my eyes before turning around to face them. He's got his hands shoved into his pockets and she's folding her arms while leaning back against the sofa. I grab the shot glass and down my third shot of the night.

"Yah, alcohol is not going to do anything. Even if you forget about her for the night, you'll still end up thinking about her. You'll still be in love with her."

"I just don't understand, out of all people, why did it have to be me?" I sigh frustratingly.

She bites her lip with a raised eyebrow. "I kind of wish you didn't bring me into this mess."

"I kind of wish that too." He mumbles softly. "I think we made things worse. I don't think we helped you at all."

"Don't you think?" I chuckle bitterly. "It doesn't matter. Whoever she's in love with, he'll be the luckiest guy on the whole entire planet. Then there's me, who's completely far from lucky."

"Who knows? Maybe she'll end up with you. You have your own reasons as to why she would belong to you. I don't think it would be a problem."

"I agree." He nods his head at her before glancing at me.

"We'll see if you guys are right. But for now, I think I'll just hold off. I can't even be strong enough to look at her straight in the eye."

"Me either." She whispers. "But when you finally find the courage, don't let her go."

"What if I don't? What if I don't and she's the one that runs away?"

"Then she just doesn't belong to you."

Killing me softly,
when I feel so lonely.

"Taehyung-ah, wake up. You look drunk as hell, how many shots did you have last night?"

I open one eye to see Namjoon shaking my shoulders. I groan, rubbing at my temples and immediately grabbing my throbbing head. "I don't know."

"Obviously more than enough to even remember," he chuckles. "I made you hangover soup, it seems like you need it."

"How did they get home last night?" I question him and Namjoon looks at me confusedly.


"Seolhyun and Jimin?" I mumble and Namjoon lets out a soft ah.

"I drove them home last night and left you here since you were already knocked out. The two of them were watching you get drunk by yourself in the living room." He explains.

"Did I do anything stupid?"

He belts out into laughter. "You didn't. I think you were crying, though."

"Same old, same old, I guess." I shrug my shoulders.

"Come on, let's go eat some soup. I hope it tastes good, I made it."

"It probably tastes like shit." I cuss. "Unless Jin came by the last minute and did some Pablo Picasso to spice things up a little bit."

"Are you sure you're not drunk anymore?" Namjoon ruffles my hair.

"Maybe just a tad bit."

Let me love you baby,
you are so lovely.

"What time is it?"

I open my eyes to see Hoseok and Yeri scrambling through the dorm. I immediately get up from the bed and look at them confusedly. Although, when they finally catch me staring at them, they look just as surprised as I am.

"Didn't you say that you had class at eight?" Hoseok asks Yeri, who's sleeping on the other side of the room, on the small couch.

"Whatever. It's too late night." She mumbles softly. "Good morning, Jungkook."

"I feel like shit." I groan, rubbing my temples. "How drunk were we last night?"

"You mean, how drunk was Hoseok last night?" Yeri laughs. "I can't believe you're the RA of this floor even though you get shitfaced drunk every Thursday night."

"Shut up. You're such a softie, you knocked out after your second shot." Hoseok snaps back at the younger one. "How are you feeling Jungkook?"

"I think a painkiller would be great, but I think I'll just call it a day."

"You're already calling it a day even though your day just started?" Hoseok teases. "Wow, yeah, I think you are right. My headache is starting to settle in."

"It was a bad idea to get drunk last night. I think I might call it a day too." Yeri groans.
